There's a hell of a game going on in London right now...3-3 Arsenal/Spurs at 74:00

Great game. Both teams need a win here.

Yep I'm flipping between the nats and this game. I freaking love when teams like Tottenham sing their chants. "When the Spurs go marching in!!" I wish baseball had stuff like that. It's so amazing when you hear everyone in unison.

Go Gooners.

This Real Madrid-Barcelona Cup final is awesome, too.

Even though he plays for the NY pink cows, I will always like Thierry Henry (I'm not Irish).  NYRB vs DC United @ Estadio RFK tonight (and on ESPN2).

City look great so far in this FA Cup final. Still, Stoke seem to always find a way to get good opportunities. Kenwyne Jones is always a threat in the air.

Watching the Champions League Final. Barcelona's starting to dominate. I'm surprised Man U isn't pressing them more in the midfield area. Sitting back and letting Barcelona come towards you is never a good idea.

Well, at least they get a rematch in July. Granted it is a meaningless friendly at FedEx, but there it is.

That play that Iniesta, Xavi, and Messi just ran was awesome.

I've never considered Rooney to be one of the better players in the world because he never dribbles at defenders outside of the box.

1-0 Barcelona

Alves might be my favorite player to watch (when he's not flopping). Dude's awesome.

I'm not a big fan of Man U but Van der Sar is pretty amazing.

Have you seen Man City's away kit for next season? It's basically AC Milan's black and red kit. Makes no sense. I wish they'd just stick to blue and white.

This is totally unrelated to this conversation I know nothing about but are those shirts made of wicking material?  I need a good shirt for the gym that can handle my massive sweating.

Yes, they are typically two layers of fine mesh...excellent wicking properties and nice ventilation.  Get a good one though, the cheap knockoffs like the Van der Vaart jersey I bought in a market in Thailand are like wearing a Glad trash bag.

I know some of them are.

My brother wears this type of shirt when he works out: http://bit.ly/jnlfg6

That might work for you.

Definitely.  I'm probably going to have to special order it since my current physique is like this dude:

I'm pretty anti-tattoo, otherwise I'd take you up on it.
